Arcadia (WQOW) - A new plan is in the works to protect a Trempealeau County city from future floods.
Arcadia has been overrun by floodwaters a number of times in the past decade causing tens of millions of dollars in damage.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is proposing a nearly $37 million proposal to address the problem. It would include new levees, floodwalls and other structural protections.
Federal and state funds would cover a large portion of the project while the city would be on the hook for roughly $14 million.
The project manager says when weighed against the costs of flood recovery, the project will actually save the city millions of dollars on the project.
An open house on the plan is scheduled for January 22 to let residents weigh in on the plan.
